Every patient in Austria has the right to admission to their nearest public hospital as a standard class patient.

As a standard class patient in a public hospital, the costs of your hospitalisation will be settled directly with your health insurance provider, although you may be required to pay a small proportion of costs.

Costs can be much higher if you are admitted to a private hospital or choose to pay as a private patient in a public hospital. Some health insurance providers will cover the costs of private treatment in a hospital.

For further information, please contact your health insurance provider.
